Altenew Twinkle & Shine Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Collection Release Blog Hop & Giveaway + Video!

Do you like to use silhouette stamps? Today I have a fun way to use silhouette stamps and colouring on the same card. But first….

Did you know that this is part of a Hop celebrating a new release from Altenew so you should have arrived here from the KELLY’s wonderful Blog!

I’m going to start today with some simple Watercolor Brush Marker Refill colouring (phew… that’s a mouthful lol) and I love that I can use just the outline layer of the Sparkled flower and totally change up the look!

I added a simple striped background from the Striped Circle Stamp Set as well as the necessary sparkle using some tiny Antique Gold Sequins.

Next is the Pen Sketched Silhouette which may look very familiar… and that’s because it is a silhouette version of the beautiful Pen Sketched Stamp Set (but facing opposite-ly). Isn’t it divine!

I decided to try out the Watercolor Pencils… without water and do some simple shading on these images. This sentiment is from the Mega Label Love set (which I just had to have lol)

And I added a little design paper from the Celebrations Paper Set as well as a couple of Satin White Sequins.

  1. Love the watercolouring and design on that first card. It won’t let me watch video at the moment but I will try again later

  2. You certainly know how to make beautiful cards.
    Love them both very much.
    With the second card, would I be right in assuming you didn’t add water?
    Such delicate colouring.
    Cheers
    Liss

  3. You always make things look so easy and in a way that’s easy to follow and add our own touches. Can’t wait for your next Give me 5 cards. They’re my favourites!

  4. Hello Therese: You have shared a pair of gorgeous cards, I love them both and I would like to see the video but it says, “Video unavailable. This video is private”.
    I hope you can check out what the problem is, I would love to see how you colored those amazing blue flowers.
    Stay healthy and safe.
    Thank you for sharing.

    1. Hi Maria, I think it was just the ‘gap’ between when my post went live and the video but it seems to be working now. Thanks for letting me know. Hopeyou have the most fabulous weekend! Crafty Hugs Tx

  5. I loved the Sparkle stamp set from the moment I saw it and it’s on the wish list. Your cards are beautiful as always. I have an old Derwent Woodless watercolor pencil set that’s hardly been used. I was thinking maybe I should add the Altenew set to give me more variety in colors. I love how you used it here, but would like to see it used with water!

  6. Gorgeous floral! I am intrigued by your coloring! The watercolor pencils are so unique and am going to add to my wish list!

  7. Therese, I look forward to all your cards and these are no exception, Yours are always my favorites.
    I love your voice, your humor and your style. Thanks,

  8. Both of these are stunning Therese and I love the look of those pencils, no wood involved. Wonder how they will handle my sweatie hands lol. Your colouring as always is amazing to watch and the end result perfect. Now I’m waiting to see with water 💚💚💚

  9. Wow! So gorgeous! Your coloring is incredible! I like both flowers especially the purple one. Beautiful!

  10. Love this card! I haven’t seen this use of watercolor pencils over a solid stamp before. I really want these pencils!

  11. Stunning cards, as always Therese. Cannot wait to see these pencils used with water also.
    Thank you so much for the inspiration.
    Keep well.

  12. Hi Therese. Love this new release and your so very simple, elegant and beautifully coloured cards are perfect. I always love to watch and listen to you, and you never disappoint. Thanks so much for sharing these two lovely cards with us for inspiration. Cards don’t have to be full of embellishments to be stunning. Love them.

  13. No problem with the video, loved both the cards, but #2 is my favourite. Need to get some of those amazing pencils!

  14. Therese, your CAS style cards are divine. Just the perfect proportions & your shading & colouring is so beautiful. Thanks again for making a video. I always enjoy them.

  15. Love your cards, and I’m loving this release!! Especially love the purple one, but like how you put the stripes from the circle stripe onto the first one

  16. WOW! Love them. I have a study in watercolor sitting on my desk at the moment waiting to be made into a sympathy card and this looks like a great card to CASE. I am going to have to come back to watch the video – life is starting to return to normal and I have to do a kiddo drop off! haven’t missed having to do those hehe

  17. Great video. I think I would be scared that I would snap the “lead” of the pencil without the wood. That’s just me! Looking forward to seeing you do more road testing.

    I think it’s a while since I’ve watched a video – love the glasses 🙂 I’m not game enough to wear colour.

  18. I am loving the new camera angles you’re including in your videos! Wonderful way to showcase the watercolor pencils and pencils alone. Beautiful job, as always.

  19. Excellent tutorial, Therese! Love your coloring and the new pencils along with the Pen Sketched stamps are wonderful! Thank you for another inspiring tutorial!

  20. yes it was great fun, your cards are amazing…loved seeing you use the watercolor pencils as colored pencils…it worked out so well…gorgeous…

  21. Both your cards are beautiful, but the one you made on your video using the silhouette stamp is absolutely gorgeous. Those pencils look amazing.

  22. That buttery yellow bloom is just lovely against the graphic stripes, Therese … and your pencil colouring is awesome (as ever) … there’s so much depth and dimension in each petal and leaf … simply beautiful! Hugs, Anita 🙂

Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear what you have to say.
